This outstanding Fremiet contains oodles of dark cherry and boysenberry fruit on the nose with very fine definition. Tightly coiled but very focused. The palate has a pretty, quite tannic entry, very nicely poised with wonderful mineralite towards the crisp, focused vintage. Bon vin! (NM)
Here the nose is appreciably fresher and also displays notes of red currant though the minerality now extends to the aromas and in hallmark Frémiets style, also suffuses the rich, supple and refined middle weight flavors blessed with ample amounts of dry extract that buffer the moderately firm tannins on the impressively long finish. The minerality is so strong that there is a Chablis-like saline character. A classy effort of finesse. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding!*
The 2009 Volnay Fremiet is beautifully pointed. Sweet dark cherries, plums, violets, graphite and licorice are woven together in an articulate, chiseled Volnay that impresses for its energy, delineation and sheer underlying structure. All the elements are in the right place. This is a terrific showing from d'Angerville and one of the few 2009s that actually needs time to come together. (AG)
A dark, spicy version, featuring black currant, raspberry and cracked pepper aromas and flavors, all matched to a steely backbone. This is a sinewy red, with dense tannins and a long finish. (BS)
